I was born and raised in the corn fields of central IL for a good portion of my life until I finished college in 2006 and then moved to Chicago where I lived for 5 years working various HR gigs. In 2011 I visited the Pacific Northwest and really liked it! So in 2012 I moved to the Seattle area and have enjoyed living/working and exploring in the PNW. I don't mind the rain and clouds... I finally got a passport in 2009 so I've been trying to make up for lost time. So far I've visited 13 countries. On top of this I've been to 43 states. I recently got a Cannon Rebel T5i and still struggling to figure out how to us it but a have managed a little. Looking forward to continue my exploration of this wide world! Hoping my next adventure takes me to Asia and or New Zealand/Australia.
Love adventure travel, meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures, landscape and travel photography, hiking/trekking, exploring national parks, mountains and lakes, coastlines, sunrises and sunsets.
